Reviews

    • “A stunning property in a stunning location!”

    Mrs Tripp, Bristol, October 2018

    • “This is our 10th visit here and as usual we had a great time. We love the mix of hotel facilities and our own house. Wonderful swimming pool, golf course and grounds for dog walking. The house was not quite so well equipped as usual (less cushions so the chairs were not so comfortable, no iron or ironing board and a baking tray that didn’t fit the oven). However, when we asked, the hotel delivered an iron straight away. I’m sure we will be back!”

    Mrs Sedgwick, Leicester, July 2018

    • “The Lodge was beautifully clean and had everything you needed. The staff at Bovey Castle were amazing, nothing was too much trouble and the facilities were excellent.”

    Mrs Richardson, HERNE BAY, July 2018

    • “Bovey Castle was excellent in helping with everything we asked for. The Lodge was of excellent quality and very convenient for the main House etc.”

    Mr Littlewood, CHELMSFORD, June 2018

The Property

2 miles from North Bovey, in a lovely setting, is Bovey Castle, built in 1907 as a country seat for the heir to the WH Smith empire and now a luxury hotel. Hidden in the grounds are 22 private, granite-built lodges of which we offer 10. These smart, stylish, comfy lodges look over the Edwardian gardens, lake and tennis courts; parking is a 5 minute walk from the lodges (unloading/loading closer). All the hotel facilities are yours to enjoy, including indoor heated swimming pool (65’ x 19'6" x 4'6" deep; children welcome between 9am and 5.30pm when accompanied by an adult), gym, steam room, sauna, spa (beauty treatments) and restaurants.

Outside are hard and grass tennis courts (lessons available), croquet lawn (seasonal) and children's climbing frame, trampoline, slide and swings. Supervised playroom for children under 8 (extra, available school holidays and half-terms) with arts and crafts, egg collecting and ferrets; 8 to 14 year olds can join the Bovey Rangers (school holidays only, extra) for activities ranging from rock climbing to survival skills. Optional activities for adults include archery, rifle shooting, fly fishing, falconry (daily display), riding, clay pigeon shooting and cider and sloe gin making. Mountain bikes available, by arrangement (extra). Wrapped around the hotel and lodges is a championship 18 hole golf course with driving range and pro shop; complimentary round (subject to availability, non-transferable) for all guests over 16. For something a little quieter, there's the 275 acre estate to roam (wellies provided). If you don’t feel like cooking, book a table at the hotel’s restaurant or brasserie. The friendly hotel staff will help you arrange any activities you wish.
